Jayson Stark knows what the Astros want for Roy

Jayson Stark has an update in ESPN's (Insider-only) Rumor Central on Roy. A run-down:

-The Astros want four players in return for Roy: One Major League player or ML-ready, two "high end" prospects, and one second tier prospect.

-Drayton is unlikely to trade Roy to the Cardinals, says a "friend:"

"I'd have to see it to believe it -- him going to St. Louis, unless Drayton is convinced his team can't win for a couple of years anyway and it doesn't matter. And that's not him."
